Finding Keepers: Unguarded Moments in the Every Day

By Alejandra Olavarria

Alejandra Olavarria is a street and documentary Melbourne-based photographer who has captured connections through an incredible black and white series.

“Connections to me is an inherently human need, much like touch. We all search for connections because connecting to another being lessens the burdens that life brings us.”

Alejandra loves the diversity Melbourne and photographing across the map, from the outer south to outer north and all the spaces in between. The streets are filled with drama, beauty and movement. “I strive to be quick, and capture the moments of unguarded vulnerability between people and the small moments and connections before they disappear.”
